With its private bedrooms and swimming pool, Villa Silvania makes a magnificent holiday retreat for a family gathering or group of friends with plenty of space for either spending time together around the pool or relaxing alone.
Location and Surrounding Area. Immersed in the natural Mediterranean vegetation, Villa Silvania is in a lovely, secluded location just above Cala del Rio near the exclusive village of Anacapri and not far from the Blue Grotto.
There is so much to see and do on Capri; a boat trip around the island and into the fabled Blue Grotto, a visit to the Emperor Tiberius' villas or the house-museum of the Swedish physician Axel Munthe. At least one evening aperitif in the celebrity-studded central Piazzetta of Capri is an absolute must. Although the island of Capri has long been a favourite haunt of the international jet set, it manages to retain an idyllic beauty and there are some excellent walking trails across Monte Solaro and over to the three picture-postcard Faraglioni rocks. Monte Solaro soars almost 600 metres above sea level and there is also a chairlift from Anacapri. From the summit, you can see not only the whole island but also across to the Amalfi Coast, the city of Naples and the mountains of Calabria.
Legend has it that Ulysses was seduced by the sirens at Marina Piccola. This delightful little bay is sheltered from the wind and it's highly likely that you'll find the locals enjoying the sun here in the winter and the fresh fish restaurants are excellent. The panoramic via Krupp takes you from Marina Piccola to Capri via the Gardens of Augustus.
The island of Capri covers a total of only 10km2 so most of the attractions on the island are within a reasonable walking distance or a short taxi ride away. The ferries to Naples leave from Marina Grande and take about 45 minutes. From Naples, you are within easy reach of Pompeii, Vesuvius, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. There are also direct ferries to Sorrento, Amalfi and Positano from Capri. Naples International airport is a ten minute taxi ride from the port.
The Property. Villa Silvania sleeps up to 12 guests and is set in a large, luxuriant garden with a stunning, floodlit swimming pool. The main house offers two spacious double bedrooms both with en suite bathrooms, a large living space with a romantic fireplace, vaulted ceiling and dining area, a fully equipped modern kitchen and a useful extra bathroom and laundry area.
This central part of the property has a stunning outside area which is perfect for both formal and informal socializing. In addition to the swimming pool and various, fully furnished relaxing and sunbathing terraces, there is a gazebo with an outside barbecue area and wood oven for starlit, al fresco dining.
The three separate double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms are very close to the main villa yet retain a delicious air of seclusion and privacy.
The annex is set up slightly higher than the rest of the property and is completely independent with a double bedroom, bathroom and its own sitting room and corner kitchen.
